Admission Process


Admissions to our school are all dealt with by Lincolnshire County Council. This includes applications for places for our new Reception intake each September and for any mid-term admissions or transfers from other schools. Our published admission number (PAN) is 30 and so each class can have up to 30 pupils. Pupils in addition to this are admitted at the direction of the local authority only.
